241,000 3-series cars with a rear-light defect have been recalled by BMW in the United States.
BMW recalled the 3-series cars, including the 325i, 325xi, 330i and 330xi, for the model years 2002 through 2005. According to a statement by BMW to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the tail lights, brake lights, and turn signals of the cars have been found to only work properly some of the time. Since drivers are not able to signal that they are braking or turning to other motorists, there is concern that this defect could result in a collision.
Andreas Lampka, a spokesman for BMW in Munich, stated that the problem only exists in the United States. As of now, the defect has not been the cause of any accidents, and the defective lights have already been fixed in 20,000 vehicles.
